Affiliate Access

Guests & Contractors

When you invite guests or contractors to PCC, you will want to arrange in advance for them to have appropriate access to the technology resources they need.

Acceptable Use and Conduct

Privileged access to PCC’s facilities, information systems and other secured resources brings with it heightened responsibility, obligation and liability.

Guests and contractors invited by PCC managers or staff to observe, maintain or enhance PCC services or facilities are bound by the same high standards of appropriate conduct and acceptable use of resources that all PCC managers and staff must abide by. In particular, all guests and contractors are expected to treat the valued customers the college exists to serve, our students, with respect and deference at all times.

Please make sure any guests or contractors you invite understand the statutes, regulations and policies that govern the lawful, respectful and appropriate handling of the privileged access to student contact and student records that they may be granted to carry out the tasks they have been invited to perform.

Guests and Contractors are strongly encouraged to review all PCC college policies and observe them with the understanding that the college is a place of business where students come for the sole and serious purpose of obtaining specialized educational services often unavailable to them by other means, and that an invitation to PCC is not an invitation to observe or interact electronically or in person with PCC students or with information about PCC students in any ways not explicitly required by the nature of the invited activity.

Wireless access

PCC guests can self-register for 24 hours of wireless access access by connecting to the “PCC-Guest” network. If long-term access is required, request affiliate access as described below.

Affiliate access for accounts, hardware, and software

To provide guests or contractors access to PCC enterprise systems, computers, equipment, or software needed for a successful visit, the manager of the hosting department needs to complete the Affiliate Access Request form. Managers can access this form in MyPCC on the Managers page.

Contact the Service Desk in advance of the visit to discuss other necessary arrangements or if you have questions about the process.
